Happy Holidays!

2015 has been an eventful year – we toured Canada with our friends in Antillectual, released an EP and performed an acoustic tour in Europe among other notable events.  Looking back we have so many people to thank for helping to create and share these milestones and moments with us.  To list you all would take some time and let’s face it – I’d probably leave some of you out by complete accident.  So from all of us to everyone: THANK YOU.  We look forward to a lot more this year, and we hope you’re as excited as we are.

Cheers!

To tide you over the rest of the holidays, here are some amazing photos by Dwayne Larson of the Authority Zero/Versus The World/Clipwing show this past weekend.

His fantastic and expansive body of work is available at www.itsamusicthing.com.

“The album ‘Ashford’ is incredible. ‘Ashford’ is an album of energetic, melodic, passionate punk rock.  This record is fun, well-written, and is a great blend of punk rock sounds and change-ups.
‘Ashford’ is the sound of a talented band consciously pushing themselves as far as they can go in terms of musicianship and song writing and in doing so they have created a record that puts many of punk’s elder statesmen to shame.”

– Stacey Steel, The Grind PRC


“Ashford has the ability to bring you back to the 90s. Biking home from friends houses with Fenix TX and Saves the Day in the discman.” 

– Jenna Arcade , Loud Webzine

And now, the rest of the story…

Thursday September 25, 2014
En route to Le Havre, France
Approx 16:00 Local Time

I will do my best to try and recount what’s happened over the past nine days, but I must admit I’ve got a wicked case of tour brain.

We left Giessen and headed further into Germany to Nuremburg, home of Money Left to Burn. Last time we were out here they were kind enough to put us up in their jam room on our night off, and even book a last minute acoustic show to fill a date that fell through. This time around we are still playing in the jam room, but with enough notice to play plugged in. A few weeks ago I noticed some posts on Facebook about the room being flooded, but Marty from MLB assured me the room would be useable by the time we arrived. It seems they had been having some issues with their landlord, who was taking his sweet time getting everything repaired. The drywall and flooded/moldy parts have been removed or replaced but otherwise the room is pretty much as I remembered it. Oh, that is with the exception of the lack of gay porn plastered on the walls. There are still a few dicks hanging around here and there, but most of it has been removed.

The first five days

Tuesday September 16, 2014
Leaving Giessen, Germany
Approx 15:00 Local Time

Having spent nearly 4 months without drinking, my mind is in a bit of a haze at the moment. I realized this morning that I’ve already begun to forget what happened during the first few shows, and as such I should probably start expending at least a minimal effort to commit what’s happening to paper. More and more I feel the urge to simply experience what is happening rather than spend my time documenting it. Of course, I had forgotten about the nearly countless hours we would have to spend in the van sitting and waiting for the next stop. So with that in mind, here we go:
